The Westpac Banking cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Westpac Banking debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Westpac Banking revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. Westpac Banking cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Westpac Banking had cash and cash equivalents of $10.88B at the beginning of the quarter and $14.01B at quarter end for 2017 Q4. Westpac Banking saw a outflow of $-1.29B from investing activities till 2017 Q4.
